Saturday 12 January marks the grand opening of Foam’s temporary new venue Foam Next Door, a former office space presenting the brand new Foam Talent 2019 exhibition with works from a new generation of visual artists.
Foam has had the unique opportunity to temporarily move into a large building on the Keizersgracht, two doors down from the museum. In Foam Next Door the exhibition Foam Talent 2019 is shown in a surprising way, in which the work of twenty selected artists provides insight into the state of contemporary photography.
The exhibition will be on show at Foam Next Door until 3 March 2019. The festive opening will take place on Saturday, 12 January 2019 by night mayor Shamiro van der Geld in the presence of the artists and with music by SYMBYOSYS.
The Talent Issue of Foam Magazine serves as an exhibition catalogue and provides more in-depth texts around the featured artists' work.
